This week’s Sweet Melissa Sundays recipe was chosen by Wendy of Pink Stripes. Wendy chose what my husband has been waiting for since strawberries started appearing at our grocery store.

Okay, I have to admit something. When I think strawberry shortcakes, I think of those spongy cakes that you find in the produce section that are made specifically for this dessert. I either use those or make angel food cake for strawberry shortcakes so this one kind of threw me for a loop. It was kind of a biscuit or maybe a scone? I still prefer a soft cake for shortcakes but the lemon zest in this recipe was divine! I wish I had a better picture to show you how pretty the zest was in the cakes.

This is the perfect summer dessert. All you really have to do is make the cakes, the rest takes only a few minutes!
